What are the main highlight of Paris Rulebook?
Paris Rulebook explains how countries should report their NDCs (voluntary pledges to reduce GHG emissions), including their calculations – reference points, base years, timing and scope; and how its considered as fair and ambitious based on national circumstances.
In order to ease the process and attract private capital from developed countries to provide climate finance to developing countries, the Rulebook has allowed the developed countries that they can report their financial support through numerous financial instruments including grants, concessional and non-concessional loans, equity, guarantees, insurance etc.
The Rulebook also states comprehensive rules on reporting of national inventory of GHG and updating the progress on INDCs.
